A lot of interstitial cystitis (IC) patients suffer from bloating and/or IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). This bloating is caused by an affected intestinal flora. Your gut flora manages a healthy digestion as well as a well functioning immune system. The use of antibiotics, medication, wrong food choices as well as stress causes a disturbed gut flora and therefore a disturbed digestion.
The only way to tackle this problem is to address all of the mentioned factors: quit taking antibiotics, quit all types of medication, seek for professional dietary advice and stimulate the recovery of your gut flora by using targeted probiotics. Always consult a professional first before setting these steps.
